about

This edited volume develops the concept of immobility and its uses in the social sciences of medicine. Editors bring the concept of immobility to the forefront of social studies of medicine to answer the following questions:

  • How does immobility shape processes of medical care?  
  • How does the medical context develop forms of movement and stasis? 
  • What are the theoretical and methodological challenges of studying immobility in medical contexts? 
  • How can we change the ways in which we conceptualise and study immobility to address these challenges?
